    Default Good story, director's vision make film a success: Mahesh Bhatt

    Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt says a film works at the office only if a director is able to translate a writer's vision on the screen. He feels stars can add to that.
    "We confuse ourselves by thinking that stars have the power to deliver blockbusters. No. If the story doesn't work, if the director does not translate the vision that is embedded in the story with the adornments that the film needs, there are no chances of it coming to anywhere close to success," said Bhatt, known for directing films like "Arth", "Saaransh", "Zakhm" and "Naam", which were high on content.
    Bhatt, known for launching new talent under his banner Vishesh Films, has this time roped in relative newcomers Aditya Roy Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor for "Aashiqui 2".
    Directed by Mohit Suri, the Rs.12 crore romantic-musical saga grossed over Rs.20 crore during its opening weekend.
    The filmmaker, who was speaking at the success party of "Aashiqui 2" here Tuesday, gives credit to writer Shagufta Rafique and the entire team for the success.
    "What made the film work was the magic that came out from Shagufta's heart. Shagufta has a very unusual background. She is the salt of the earth and pulled the narrative from her heart," the 65-year-old said.
